Networking

Supports Wi-Fi

The NP-P401W supports Wi-Fi. Most of the other comparable spec projectors that have been around for a similar time to this projector do not support Wi-Fi.

We compared this projector to all the other projectors which support Wi-Fi and we think the NEC L51W which has better reviews is also worth considering.

It is worth also looking at alternative multimedia projectors which also support Wi-Fi including the NEC NP-P451 ($1,450.15).
